About Parks Professional Pathways

Parks Professional Pathways, presented by BC Recreation and Parks Association, is BC’s exclusive conference for parks professionals, such as maintenance staff, planners, visionaries, change-makers, and decision-makers. Parks professionals from local governments and from the private sector look to this conference as the place to keep up-to-date with the latest best practices, technology, and trends to stay on the changing demands of the environments they work in.

In 2023, we held our 46th annual parks conference, where we welcomed professionals, visionaries and leaders in horticulture, maintenance, arboriculture, and planning from all over.
